I bought this laptop a little over 2 weeks ago and initially was impressed. It's very light, well made and great to look at. There is very little flex in it for such a thin machine and the separate-key keyboard is slightly spongy but a delight to use.

I wasn't sure about buying another radio from PURE. I returned the PURE AVANTI Flow Table-top Digital Music System I bought last year because it was complicated, didn't work with my iPhone and generally didn't meet my expectations see my review on that here:"

The Chronos iDock is a completely different animal. It's really simple to use. Basically, just switch it on and it will find DAB stations & set the clock automatically. Programming presets is straight forward… Read more
